Tracy has arrived back from Madrid, she was there with a friend from Ibiza. Dave has arrived today to work with us for 2 months, he has come over from Australia which is great.
I am feeling slightly more optimistic about next week, maybe it's more a state of mind than anything else. I'm not totally sure of the power of positive thinking but I know it helps. If I am tired, hungry or ill my frame of mind isn't so good. My blood sugar dips and I manifest grumpiness.
Do you ever wonder what your going to be like when you are old?
I'm worried I could become a grumpy old man. There are certain aspects of old age I look forward to, like being able to wear clothes from Austin Reed and Jaeger. I have a stiff knee now and think it could get worse, I've had two bouts of surgery on it. My back hurts at times and my right elbow gets stiff! I just hope I don't fall apart.
Actually I wouldn't mind a motorised wheelchair and occasionally when I wake up in the night needing a wee I wish I could wear incontinence pants. We've all been there, haven't we?
I like what Albert Einstein had to say on the subject "People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live...[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born."
Anyway I'm only 38, when I was younger I used to think 38 was old but I was wrong......
